PowerPivot Install Error Window 7 Professional RRS feed

  • Question

  • OS is 32 Windows 7 Professional and installed office is 32 Bit Office Professional Plus 2010 installed with all shared components.  I downloaded file PowerPivot_for_Excel_x86.msi.  After office install - when installing PP I get error that everyone is discussing "Setup missing prerequisites".  When I installed Office - I installed EVERYTHING.  It installed fine on my XP machine but I cannot find anything relating to Windows 7 Professional.  I have .Net Frameworks 4 (VS 2010 installed and working, SQL 2008 R2 installed and working).

    I also tried uninstalling Office and re-installing.

    Any suggestions?

  • Went to c:\windows\system32 and right click cmd.exe - run as administrator.  Navigated to msi file and executed it.  It worked (even though I am local admin this was needed).
